The United States reduces daily deaths, but coronavirus infections continue to grow

Washington – The United States recorded 1,640,972 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 97,679 deaths from the disease, according to the independent count by Johns Hopkins University. This balance, at 8:00 p.m., is 22,024 more infections than on Saturday and 696 new deaths. The figures for this Sunday reflect a decrease in deaths, but positive cases for COVID-19 continue to grow. New York State remains the great epicenter of the pandemic in the United States, with 361,515 confirmed cases and 29.1411 deaths, a figure similar to that of Spain and France. In New York City, 21,216 people have died, according to records from authorities in the Big Apple. New York State is followed by neighboring New Jersey, with 154,154 confirmed cases and 11,138 deaths; Illinois, with 110,304 infections and 4,856 deaths, and Massachusetts, which accounts for 92,675 positive for coronavirus and 6,372 deaths. Other states with a large number of deaths are Michigan with 5,232, Pennsylvania with 5,136, California with 3,740 or Connecticut with 3,696. The provisional balance of deceased -97,679- is close to the initial estimates of the White House, which projected at best between 100,000 and 240,000 deaths; But it has already far exceeded the most optimistic calculations made “a posteriori” by US President Donald Trump, of between 50,000 and 60,000 deceased. The University of Washington Institute for Health Metrics and Assessments (IHME), whose White House often predicts models for the evolution of the pandemic, estimates that by early August the crisis will have left more than 143,000 deaths in United States. Americans enjoy a long weekend celebrating Memorial Day, a date traditionally considered the start of summer in the country.
